whats new does not refresh on db changes

Bug #949725 reported by Michael Vogt on 2012-03-08
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The "Whats new" category does not refresh on db changes (e.g. when new content is added via the software-center-agent web api).

1. rm -rf ~/.cache/software-center (or move it aside)
2. open software-center in a terminal
3. wait a few seconds until you see " softwarecenter.ui.gtk3.app - INFO - software-center-agent finished with status 0" in the terminal
4. verify that the "Whats new" content in the main window does not change
5. install software-center from ooneiric-proposed
6. repeat 1-3 and verify that it updates this time

Hello Michael, or anyone else affected,

Accepted software-center into oneiric-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
